Thanks in advance.
Your car is too new for the Russian VIN site. The data are not yet available...

Don't believe everything you think

Question

I just tried out the Russian MB Club site and was very impressed, but I have a few questions y'all might be able to help me out with:

--if the code is listed, then it applies to the car with that VIN?
--"unknown codes"...I see someone above knows what they really mean. Is there a site or list I can use to fill out the stats the Russian site gives me?

1985 190D

I have the following VIN#: WDBDB22C8FF079047. My indie mechanic can't pull it up, nor can the Mercedes dealer (dealer can give me the VMI though), and the russian site doesn't list it. Can one of you guys try to get the card info? Or at least try to decode it? Thanks.

All, try to read your VIN very carefully, all 17 digits.

There seem to be quite a few cars that are not listed on the MB on-line system (mainly US cars) and if a local dealer cannot pull the code, nobody here should be able to do that. I remember an expert here explaining why some cars are missing (not sure if it was grey market, I don't think so) and he knew how the car was brought back to the system.

The Russian site does not know all new codes or their current assignments. An "unknown" code is given in this case. EPC of course gives a full list of codes but pretty complete lists have been posted on this forum too.

Every code on the data card means something unique for that car. However, it does not necessarily mean an optional accessory, specifically not for a particular market like the US where more options are standard than elsewhere.

How does this one compute?

12312312146057

Supposedly a 79 240D auto... but is it? Or is it correct?

TIA

Added on edit: If I add a WDB to the front of that, only the Russian site can get it right or close to right. This is what it says...

VIN WDB12312312146057

But how can I do any kind of Carfax Search with that? Will that be legitimate use or VIN alteration to get me the right information?

LOL. Sorry about that ..Germanstar but many thanks for doing that.

And no to my question of can you use that VIN to do Carfax. Carfax doesn't recognize that number like the Russian site does. Darn it...
